    How do you use LaTex [ math]sqrt{x}[\math]

    Why does [tex]sqrt{x}[\math] come out as [tex] not the formula?
    I have been struggling for hours . even typing in the tutorial example:
    [tex]x^2\sqrt{x}[\math] although the first expression was typed in as [ math ] (with out the spaces )

    What is your point?
    The code [tex]x^2\sqrt{x}[/tex] gives x^2\sqrt{x}.

    Could you post a link to where you found this example? Perhaps the tutorial needs to be corrected.

    Re: How do you use LaTex [ math]sqrt{x}[\math]

    The point is :
    The tutorial says type in [math]...... \[math]
    but when I do I do not get the formular as you have - by changing [\math] to tex i see!

    If it did work you would have sen the maths formula in my post ...!

    When I type in [ math] sqrt{x} \[mat] as an example .(I know about not leaving spaces )

    When I preview I get [tex]... my formula as I typed it in...[\math] I do not get a formula in mathematical notation

    Please take note that the correct wrap is [tex]x^2\sqrt{x}[/tex].
    In particular it begins with [tex] and ends with [/tex].

    Your post has a huge number of typos: using \ instead of /, having \ before [ instead of after, writing mat instead of math, etc. It is not surprising that with such number of typos something does not work. I suggest you copy-paste the code from the tutorial instead of re-typing it. If you still have an example in the tutorial that does not work, please post a link to that example. Plato showed the exact code to produce a LaTeX formula.

    Re: How do you use LaTex [ math]sqrt{x}[\math]

    My point was I did not know what I was doing wrong- I never said the tutorial was wrong - why is every one so arsey?
    It was anther person who suggested the tutorial was wrong.. THE TUTORIAL CLEARLY SHOWS \ not / as I had to keep correcting my self - being used to using / as divide by.
    See the inserted images in my other answer
    In my original post there are NO typo math is math and \ is as the tutorial showed me i.e. not /

    I just wanted some help! I am not criticising any one except my self!

    In reply #2, I wrote[tex]x^2\sqrt{x}[/tex] gives x^2\sqrt{x}

    You must use the TeX wrap [tex] [/tex]
